NVM has carried out work for private individuals who are disturbed by low frequency noise within their homes.  The threshold of hearing is the lowest sound level that can be heard; it depends upon the pitch or frequency and is strongly variable between different individuals.  It has often been observed that, while individual hearing thresholds vary, one person can describe a sound at low frequency as “loud” while others cannot hear that sound.  NVM has investigated whether a noise is apparent, can be classed as a nuisance, most likely to be ground borne, i.e., vibration transmitted into and through the ground  and appearing as noise within a property.
